THE NATURE OF TRUTH
Broken fullness, in finished fragments
instantly incarnate falls upon the
fantastic mirror of the human heart,
truth entire and absolute living fills
as a hand in glove,clear,succinct
consistent,by this God of love.It
coversand commands the finite
over which it bends,the amplest
and clearest,highest spoken to man.
This ideal once of man and of God.
A manual of worship sublimates
the springs of hope and joy,charms
heart and imagination in Christ,
From George Gilfillan preface to The Bards of the Bible
*A Phrasis is a structured verse where the poet uses selected prose phrases of another writer’s(not a poet) to compile unique poetry therefrom as a tribute thereto,the word phrasis is Greek for phrase.
